I recently gave a talk at a local garden fair, an all-day event with workshops, etc. I was one of twenty or so speakers, and I gave a talk about poison plants (there are many in our gardens). As an author, I've used them a lot.
I rediscovered how much fun it was to talk about writing all in the context of talking about gardening. I had a lot of audience interaction, and I was able to work in talk about my books while talking about gardening.
Sometimes you need these "surprise" events to make you realize you're having fun. Now back to writing -- I have a new poison idea I want to explore.
Just kidding. Kind of.
